“Willy’s station wagon made into camping trailer back in the 50’s. Been saving it to restore an pull behind my Willy’s station wagon or truck, but time to let someone else enjoy it. Has the rare, hard to find, ‘ barn doors ‘ in back. Will need metal work, but it’s mostly flat panels on body and frame.”

(03/16/2014) I think this is the sixth different wagon-into-trailer that I’ve listed (see here for the others). Kent Frost‘s has been the nicest I’ve seen.

“Willy’s wagon made into pull behind camper in the 1960’s. Has the hard to find ambulance or ‘barn doors’ in back. I used to pull it behind my Willys to swap meets. Have the parts to make this complete for street rod / rat rod / rock climber / etc. $1200. as is.”

Kent Frost – A Man of Canyonlands

(Originally Published April 2011) Without a doubt, my favorite part about running this website are the unexpected, interesting people to whom I’m introduced (if only virtually).  One of those people is Kent Frost, a product of the Four Corners area and whom we caught glimpses of in Alan’s color photos of the 1961 Four Corners trip.

Doug commented on one of the Four Corner posts that he had read a book by Kent Frost called “My Canyonlands”, published in 1971. I’m very happy that Doug mentioned the book, because I ordered it and have enjoyed it immensely.  Kent describes all kinds of adventures and early trips into remote areas of the four corners region.  He loved to explore and hike, later jeep and river run, and that remote area has given him a lifetime of experiences.

Perhaps most amazing is that Kent is still alive and was featured in a documentary in 2009.  At the time of the documentary he was 92,  still driving, still hiking, and still exploring.  In fact, I think just by looking at what he uses for a camper you’ll immediately understand that he’s quite the character.

Here is a short excerpt from the movie “My Canyonlands – The Adventurous Life of Kent Frost”, created by Chris Simon. The DVD can be purchased through cnha.org, which is the only place I have found it so far.

Here are a few snapshots of his ‘camper’ that were taken from the youtube video.

And here is an example of the type of advertising Kent did for his 4wd tour business. This is an ad placed in the 1976 issue of Desert Magazine.

1950 Wagon-Trailer Craigmont, Id **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: trailer, Unusual, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Status Unknown. Was $550.

(08/26/09) “Up for sale is a 1950 Willy’s Jeep Station Wagon Trailer. I have used it for a vendor trailer selling auto parts at swap meets in the past and for storage to keep items out of the weather. The interior is open with one large shelf and several drawers underneath for extra storage. The glass has been replaced with plywood which I just applied a fresh coat of paint to. The rear window is the only one remaining on the trailer. The tires are in good shape and it has a spare tire.”
